Happy Stash Fulfillment Week!

Finally after weeks of waiting things started showing up in the mail this week.   On Monday my evenweave Addicts Box came in from HAED, here's a snap with a list of the goodies that came with it.

Woodland Guardian MC by Anne Stokes
Lincoln 14ct. Zweigart (summer khaki)
HAED fridge magnet
Bees wax house
Pink stone stitch markers w/ bag
Ship's manor cotton floss limited ed. (Cupid)
Valdani #12 pearl cotton (Distant Mauve - Med.)




Thankfully I added a note to my wish list on HAED so I got the chart I really wanted.  The rest of the stuff is OK, but I really hate the fabric they sent.  Khaki is so blawh and the stitch count being 14 I'll never use it.  On the other hand I love the ship's manor floss; it reminds me of cotton candy or sherbet ice cream.  This was a one shot for me; I doubt I'll ever spend my money on another surprise box.
 
Today my long awaited floss kit came from HAED along with a couple other goodies I got as well - A Stitch In Time/HAED mouse pad and a package of 5 John James Petite Size 28 Tapestry Needles. 
Plus a couple of unexpected gifts! - A glass bead needle threader and a wooden needle holder/tube.


A few other things that have come in the mail since May 1st -  A grime guard by StormbornBoutique for my 17x17 q-snap, two packages of  Easy-Count Guideline by www.rseasycount.com, one Mageyes hands free magnifier, and my 1yd x 1yd 7in fabric for my HAED chart "A Stitch In Time by Aimee Stewart".

 

Tomorrow I start surging the edges and gridding the fabric, hopefully I'll put in some x-stitches over the weekend for IHSW.

So many lovely goodies ;-) I am sorry to hear that you are not that happy, but I know what you mean. Shipping to Europe was almost as expensive as the box itself, so I didn't order one in case I got things I couldn't use (like 14ct fabric...). I think they plan on setting up an option to choose the count now and since they changed the packaging to reduce the shipping costs, I might order a box after all. I have seen a lot of great pics with the hand dyed fabrics in the box ;-)

The colors in your kit look amazing, I am very excited to see your start. I have a similar magnifier, it took a while to get used to and I need the right distance for it to focus, but it's a real help =)
